February 10, 2012 09:00 AMWhen Riverbed and others brought WAN acceleration to the market around the turn of the century, many of us hoped that with WAN acceleration we could pull the servers, and the headaches they cause, from branch offices.

January 31, 2012 09:00 AMAs use of IT grows in enterprises, so, too, do demands on networks to deliver more capacity and speed and to be able to prioritize traffic.

April 08, 2010 01:05 PMOne of the benefits of WAN Optimization is the ability to consolidate server resources currently located in remote offices back into a central data center. By reducing the hardware requirements in remote offices, you might be able to lessen capital expenses and will certainly reduce operational expenses such as power, cooling and management. Further savings can be had using broadband Internet connections and a VPN to interconnect remote offices. Making that just a little easier, Riverbed and McAfee are partnering to offer McAfee's Firewall Enterprise on Riverbed's Steelhead platforms, removing the additional firewall appliance in the branch and providing a robust firewall and VPN security system.
